After a successful battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Liam Hendriks is back with the White Sox.

The 34-year-old reliever is expected to be activated on Monday before the White Sox's series against the Angels. The club confirmed the news in an emotional social media video on Sunday evening.

Hendriks was diagnosed in December of 2022 before undergoing four rounds of chemotherapy and immunotherapy over the span of five months. Hendriks completed his last round of chemotherapy on April 3, quickly returning to the mound for rehab assignments later that month.

As expected, the veteran pitcher received an outpouring of support of Twitter after the news broke on Sunday.

Hendriks will have a chance to make his season debut on Monday at 7:10 p.m. CT against the Angels, with all the action airing on NBC Sports Chicago and streaming online here.
